12:30 < SachaD> Another question: What wrong with this csv file (26.6 mb). When I opened it in LibreOffice it has 31 columns, but when I open it in mlpack I see n_cols == 61 in debugger and values are wrong.

16:57 < HimanshuPathakGi> Hey zoq can you please have a look at
16:59 < zoq> HimanshuPathak: Sure, it's on my list of things to review, perhaps I can take a look later today.
17:02 < HimanshuPathakGi> Ok I can wait.
17:05 < rcurtin> HimanshuPathak: there are too many PRs and too few reviewers :( if you want to help out, you should feel free to review other PRs too and help other contributors. that can be really helpful :)
17:07 < HimanshuPathakGi> Sure I will try to review other PRs
17:08 < rcurtin> awesome, thanks. a lot of the times there are PRs where there is some build failure that needs to be debugged and the contributor is having trouble with it
17:11 < jeffin143[m]> Today Mozilla made its biggest layoff employees ,-> fighting financial crises.
17:11 < jeffin143[m]> Maintain an open source project is difficult :'(
17:11 < HimanshuPathakGi> Sure I will try to help other contributors thanks for suggestion rcurtin
17:11 < rcurtin> jeffin143[m]: yeah, it is not easy :(
17:12 < rcurtin> especially trying to make a business out of open source software is hard

17:12 < rcurtin> my company works with Julia Computing, which is a company that helps maintain Julia and makes money consulting, and it's a hard business

18:33 < HimanshuPathakGi> Hey rcurtin I was trying to look at the build of but there was an error BUILD not found is it usual same with
18:34 -!- SachaD [] has joined #mlpack
18:35 < rcurtin> maybe because the build is sufficiently old that it got deleted?
18:36 < rcurtin> maybe there is something in our azure configuration that could be modified to preserve builds for longer? I'm not sure, I don't know very much about that
18:37 < HimanshuPathakGi> Ok I will try any other PR
19:19 -!- ImQ009 [~ImQ009@unaffiliated/imq009] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
19:34 < rcurtin> you can also look into how azure could be reconfigured; I don't know anything about it
19:34 < rcurtin> it would certainly be useful if it kept builds around for longer
19:38 < HimanshuPathakGi> Sure I will try to look for this

20:16 < HimanshuPathakGi> Hey rcurtin we can keep builds for longer time by changing the retention policies of run in setting tab of the project
20:28 < zoq> HimanshuPathak: Thanks, let me set everything to the maximum.
20:33 < HimanshuPathakGi> Saving builds for longer time will help us you're welcome zoq
20:47 < kumaran[m]> Hey. I've build mlpack from GitHub source, (by building armadillo from source) and I'm looking at issues related to porting project to modern cmake.
20:47 < kumaran[m]> I have some experience with cmake and I've previously used googletest and boost with cmake.
20:47 < kumaran[m]> What can I do to get started?
20:52 -!- SachaD [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
20:56 < zoq> kumaran[m]: Hello, there is a PR open for ensmallen which you could review.
22:27 < Nakul[m]> Hey zoq whne some test fails how to see where might be fault because running ctest -T simply says either passed or fails. I have buided with debug mode on
22:28 < Nakul[m]> *when
22:36 < zoq> Nakul[m]: If you can't reproduce the issue on you system, tracking down an error is difficult, I'll see if I can reproduce the error on my system tomorrow.
22:37 < Nakul[m]> Ok
22:37 < zoq> Nakul[m]: Maybe you have another system at hand to test this as well.
22:40 < zoq> Nakul[m]: Btw. looks like it failed to build on windows, if you don't have a windows system, you can take a look at the log and maybe figure out what the issue is.
22:43 < zoq> Nakul[m]: Another idea to reproduce the issue, is to build against the same armadillo version as used on the build jobs.
23:49 < rcurtin> Nakul[m]: you also don't have to run the tests with ctest. You could call `bin/mlpack_test -t NameOfTestSuite/NameOfTestCase` directly
23:49 < rcurtin> you can also get output like `CTEST_OUTPUT_ON_VERBOSE=1 ctest`
